What can I do if I don't have the money to buy the software?
If I buy software, how much will it cost, who will support it and can I have a trial version to see how easy it is to use?
Where can I get the statistics to see exactly how many 203k loans have been processed in my state or in my area? I heard that 203k loans are on the decline.
What source is used for doing the estimates? Since I have to put together bid packages for contractors, I need to know what the going rate is for the work to be performed including profit and overhead. Do I have to separate labor and materials per the HUD guidelines?
This is more than an inspection, it is inspecting the property to see what needs to be done to bring it up to FHA standards then doing measuring and estimating for all the work to be done and working with the buyer and the contractor that gets the job after you spec'd it out.
